Is it time for the DC area to panic and evacuate or just run out and get bread, milk, eggs and toilet paper?
Don’t know about DC but 80 miles north in drought stricken southern PA it’s time for me to move any planters partially under roof to a spot where they can receive unimpeded rain.
Kind of ironic...
My daughter and son-in-law live just north of Philadelphia.
He had a work conference he had to attend in Tampa, FL, so
my daughter took some days off to tag along and go to the beach.
So they left Pennsylvania to go to Florida,
and while they are gone, PA gets hit with a tropical storm!
Reminds me of the song from the 80s

Currently sitting on a ship anchored off NYC and waiting to ride the storm out. Our trip to Nova Scotia was cut short yesterday afternoon and our ship sent back to NYC where it’s supposedly safer. Watching the waves get bigger and the wind is picking up...
Went to the Phils game tonight. Don’t think they are playing tommorrow.
Been raining pretty hard and steady the last few hours. It’s a bit on the windy side tonight too. I am in NC, I-95 corridor area about an hour from the NC/VA state line.
Hatteras should be interesting about now.
Do not, as some ungracious pastors do, show me the steep and thorny way to heaven.
Now *that* is the way to time a vacation!
I got a bit of chocolate - I’m supporting our friends up the East coast:)
That’s the spirit!
